STOCKHOLM – March 4, 2021 – Everhood, the unconventional RPG adventure from Foreign Gnomes where nothing is as it seems, explores the boundaries of existence and rocks out to musical battles on Nintendo Switch and Steam for Windows PC today.
Welcome to Everhood, a bizarre realm located on the edges of space and time. Its inhabitants are a peculiar lot. These otherworldly entities spend their days wandering labyrinthine castles. Clubbing and board games are popular pastimes here, as well. That is, until a gnome steals an arm from Red, the wooden doll. A seemingly simple quest to reclaim it begins to pull at the fraying threads of this strange world, unraveling a mystery and reality in the process.
Go on a trip through the doors of perception. Explore fantastical environments in the hunt for the pinched limb. Play hide and seek with animate mushrooms in the forest, win carnival prizes, and race go-karts against colorful characters like mages, sentient save points, robots, and vampires.
Learn about Red’s past and come ever-closer to finding the Absolute Truths of the universe.
But knowledge often comes at a cost. Some of Everhood’s eclectic residents aren’t content to let Red roam the realm freely. Face off against challengers ranging from multi-legged monsters to brothers who run a plank-selling business and the fearsome Gold Pig in musical battles. Avoid incoming attacks by moving, grooving, and leaping out of harm’s way while jamming out to bespoke battle themes as varied as the inhabitants of this curious community.
Red’s journey is teeming with secrets and world-alerting revelations. As Everhood’s true nature begins to appear, adventurers will make decisions that impact Red’s role in the fate of everyone – and everything – the doll encounters. Experience a twisting story and overcome dance-based trials across five difficulty modes, a range of accessibility options, and an unlockable New Game Plus feature that calls into question everything that’s come before it.
“Everhood began as a side project between my co-developer Jordi Roca and me,” said Chris Nordgren, co-founder, Foreign Gnomes. “Since then, it’s evolved into the strange, vibrant, and mysterious game that we are so proud to share with everyone on Nintendo Switch and Steam today. Sign the contact, sell your soul, and join us in Everhood!”
Everhood is now available on Nintendo Switch for $14.99 and Steam for $9.99. It features English, French, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), and Japanese language options. The PC version launches with beta mod support in the form of a fully-featured custom battle editor. Additional updates will be available following launch.
